EM Hosts Contract Performance and Management Workshop

February 15, 2012 - 12:00pm


WASHINGTON, D.C. – EM hosted the Environmental Management Contract Performance and Management Workshop at DOE headquarters Wednesday.

The goal of the workshop was to identify opportunities to improve contract and project management with the objective of delivering results on time and within cost.

In addition to DOE senior leadership, participants included corporate representatives from all EM large- and small-business prime cleanup and construction contractors. Deputy Secretary Daniel Poneman delivered the keynote address in a video message. Under Secretary for Nuclear Security Thomas D’Agostino attended the event.

"Today's workshop with the corporate representatives provided an excellent opportunity to share thoughts and ideas on how to improve contract performance and management within EM," Senior Advisor for Environmental Management David Huizenga said. "I was truly impressed with the partnership that exists between the Department and our corporate teammates. I received open, frank and invaluable input that will help serve the EM program and U.S. taxpayers. EM will review the recommendations and develop an aggressive implementation plan."

In 2010, a similar workshop was held. A number of recommendations from that workshop were implemented.
